This week I’ve got a feeling it’s all gonna be about the hair… maily because I took my bi-annual trip to the hairdressers. I hate doing it and therefore only force myself to go when absolutely necessary – basically when my barnet starts to resemble a bird nest – and then spend the next 2 weeks complaining that my hair is cack because I can’t figure out how to style it properly.
So… the positive thing about going to the hairdresser is that they actually know what they’re talking about. It’s not like it used to be where you’d go in, have an inch chopped off and you’d be on your way. Now it’s all about consultations, diagnosis, special treatment and professional products. But that’s why we pay a fortune and come out feeling a million bucks with shiny, swinging hair.
I normally get told off when I go because, as a girl with naturally wavy/curly hair, I straighten my locks to death. I know I should use heat protection spray (and I do have about 5 different ones) but I somehow always forget to use it… maybe I should make it a mid-year resolution. Hoorah! I have found a solution! This trip I had my hair done by a young girl who had just had hair extensions removed and found her head looking like she’d been electrocuted. She started using Redken’s Anti Snap and I can swear on my GHDs that she now looks fabulous, with silky shiny hair after only a few weeks. So of course I snapped some up for myself.
Redken’s magic formula is around the £16 mark, but if it saves your barnet it’s worth it. I’ve been using it for a couple of days and already can tell a difference. It’s full of proteins, lipids and all manner of good things to restore your hair and prevent it from breaking – especially great if you straighten, dye or abuse your hair. Lush.
